Battery Life Used: Galaxy S3 vs. HTC Evo 4G LTE

So, I'm considering one of the two above phones off the used/Glyde/Ting markets.  Both will do what I need, and I can CM 11 either.

If you've picked one up recently, how's the battery life been?

Anyone bought a replacement battery for either?  What did you get and how well is it working?

  • I've been on a used S3 for approaching two months. Right away I did an Odin update to factory KitKat, activated, then did a backup and installed CM11. With location/data/WiFi turned off and the radio forced to EVDO, my idle drain has been running about 0.3%/hr. Not as good as I'd like, but tolerable. I also use a display theme that favors dark backgrounds, to reduce AMOLED power draw.
